Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was a very relaxed job, but the news provided by the station was a joke. There were no health benefits. Overnight position will interfere with personal life.

Great work environment

Such a great place to work, with an excellent culture! The teams are happy, the location is beautiful, and the job is fun. The learning curve can be a bit steep, but it's totally worth it.

This is a non profit company and they treat their employees well. My job can be stressful at times but for the most part it is a great job. I enjoy working for this company. We have a great benefit package and a fun work environment.

A nice workplace but the hours are very difficult to manage a personal life.

I would recommend this job to a young man or woman who is new to Television Broadcast industry. It is a nice position to learn the ins and outs of the station.. This position places you at the end of the signal chain.

medium

I worked Graveyard shift only and thoroughly enjoyed it. The work load was heavy but manageable. The salary/benefits/bonuses were excellent. The programming was sports, so that was a plus. Meeting sports heroes daily was definitely interesting.

Master control of the jail

Watch inmates thru cameras that could function 360 degrees. Monitor all phone calls and video phone calls. Made sure that the correctional officers were safe at all times. Communicate with them on situations in each pod. Open and closed all doors going into the jail as well as each cell. Answered all phone call coming into the jail.

Pros

It was close to where i lived.

Cons

Having to talk with inmates

Not bad, but not good either

Overall, the job is easy, although technical. If you can get over being overwhelmed, and think fast, it can be rather enjoyable. My biggest problem is lack of compensation. The position is underpaid when compared to the same job with other companies, and raises are unheard of.

Pros

somewhat flexible schedule

Cons

no raises or job opportunities in other areas

highly technical and detail oriented position

highly technical and detail oriented. Very little contact with other co-workers a solitary position. The hardest part of this position is the solitude.

Data Entry

Spent mornings logging onto computer, reading emails, going over tasks that needed to be addressed. Then off to consolidating thousands of files into existing files.

Pros

Work from Home

Cons

Had to learn to adjust to managing time and making the most of the time I had to complete tasks
